This is a new page and a new direction for the blog. Please bear with me as I make additions. I will be highlighting locally owned shopping opportunities and shopping destinations nearby.

Downtown Madison, NC

Madison has a cute downtown area that is packed with little boutiques, has a craft brewery, a coffee house, and a restaurant that opens in the evening for dinner. In the Christmas shopping season, they have a mule drawn wagon that goes up and down the streets. This is a good year-round destination for shopping and is especially festive during the holidays.

BlueStone Ivy Boutique – opened in September of 2020, this is a cute boutique offering casual women’s clothes

Eclectic Calico Vintage Store – vintage clothes and antiques, jewelry, et cetera. This boutique offers a lot of variety.
